NATIONAL CALL-IN DAY TO SPEAK UP FOR EDUCATION AND KIDS

WEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 2010

Wednesday, May 26, 2010 is the start of the National Speak Up for Education & Kids Campaign.  It begins with a National Call-in Day.

TAKE ACTION:

   * On Wednesday May 26th, call 1-866-608-6355 to contact your Representative in Congress.

   * You will hear talking points and will be connected to the United States Capitol Switchboard – ask for your House Member.

   * Tell your Representative to protect the future of our children by supporting funding to save education jobs in the emergency funding bill.

   * With 300,000 education layoffs expected, our students are the ones who will suffer – in overcrowded classrooms, with less time in school, and without the teachers and school staff needed to give them individual attention and help.

   * Forward this call-in day information to five friends. Ask them to call Congress on May 26th and to forward this e-mail to five more friends.

Other Actions You Can Take to Speak Up for Education And Kids:

*  E-mail your Members of Congress to support funding to save education jobs in the emergency supplemental appropriations bill.

*  Become a “fan” of Speak up for Education and Kids (http://www.facebook.com/speakupforkids) on Facebook — a community of educators and concerned citizens – now more than 12,000 strong – who believe our nation has a responsibility to invest in education and avoid the short-sighted cuts that could deprive our students of the bright futures they deserve.

*  Visit Education Votes (www.educationvotes.nea.org) to find out how you can make sure your voice is heard on the education issues that matter the most.

Congress can’t ignore a strong message from all across the nation.  Make your voice heard!

Participate in the National Call-In Day and speak up for education and kids!

    if we start seeing massive layoffs of teachers, which is what is coming down the pike if Congress does not act.  Remember, most states and local governments cannot legally go into debt in order to save jobs such as these, which is why the focus is on federal funding.
